What’s been happening…
In case you didn’t already know, our aim here at Don’t Panic is to inspire, inform and celebrate all the fantastic events we are privileged to be involved in. And we’ve been involved in many incredible events recently.
Kicking off with March, this was a busy month with some truly fabulous events. Starting with the amazing PR Moment Awards for the North, Northern Ireland & Scotland and London & The South (including the Midlands and Wales). The awards attracted over 1000 guests between them, and was one of the biggest celebrations in PR and Communications in the UK.
We also helped manage the Tech Nation Roadshow, the most comprehensive analysis of the UK Digital Tech Ecosystem. Travelling to over 7 cities, packed up in a van, the team have certainly explored the UK!
Another successful event was the SLI Connect Conference, an annual celebration of all things e-commerce. The day included keynote speakers, presentations, workshops and panel discussions and finished with an exclusive after party. It was simply fabulous
Not to mention our very first Bidex Conference at the rather special Ham Yard in London; an exploration of all things biddable, which was praised for its informative content and enriching experience. Don’t worry if you missed out, Bidex will return in 2018.
The most recent additions to our awards calendar are shaping up to be impressive ceremonies. The MENA Search Awards in Dubai and UK Biddable Media Awards in London both got more than 100 high quality entries – which is phenomenal, especially in their first year.
Coming up in April, we have two amazing awards ceremonies. The incredible European Search Awards in Krakow, Poland and the prestigious Educate North Awards in Manchester. Make sure you get your tickets before it’s too late
And a bit further into the future, in May, the MENA Search Awards ceremony will be taking place in Dubai and The CIPR International Global PRactice Conference 2017 will take place in London. The Global PRactice will focus on how PR practitioners around the world can effectively address crisis, ethics and managing global teams in today’s PR environment.
So, with plenty of successful events just wrapped up, and some amazing things to look forward to, it’s all very exciting over here – and we’re feeling great!
